I’m Singing Tonight at Carnegie Hall!

I’m singing as part of a performance called “Gotham SINGS! Choral Festival and Ensemble Showcase.” Not a bad way to spend a Saturday.

I took this heading back to the subway to go home after rehearsal. My city is like a movie set, and quite gaudy, but since I don’t live in this part of town it’s fun to walk through from time to time. In the years I’ve lived here the signs for the Late Show set on the right have changed from “with Johnny Carson” to Jay Leno and now Stephen Colbert (who I adore). Except I can’t remember if it has always been in this spot. Because I’m old and that’s how it goes. TREMBLE young people. You’ll get here. If you’re lucky.

Times Square, New York City, 2019
